This humble spot in Southwest Portland is full of McMenamins beer history — it was the very first McMenamins brewery. The big, bowl-shaped planter in front of the bar originally held the mash for the company’s very first on-site brew, crafted in October 1985. The framed piece of scribbled-on paper near the door is the original brew sheet for that first brew.
